". . . a terribly important and well-done piece of work. Its conceptualizing can short-cut a lot of ill-guided plodding that researchers on democratization are doing, or are about to start."
-- Prof. J. Richard Hackman, Yale University School of Management
". . . fascinating. It is well-done and, from my own observations, it is sound."
-- Prof Richard E. Walton, Harvard University School of Business
"Unlike most contributions in this area, Bernstein's work is not narrowly confined to the experience of one or a few societies, but is broadly comparative. Further, his analysis is not doctrinaire or ideological, but empirical and analytic."
-- Prof W. Richard Scott, Stanford University Department of Sociology
". . . an important work. It examines what appears to be an increasingly important issue and contributes considerable insight. It is well-written, especially the way cases are used to inductively derive a model. [Thus] in addition to its content, the book is very useful in illustrating a sophisticated use of case or clinical data in theory-building. On balance, ... an important scholarly contribution."
-- Prof James G. Hunt, College of Business Administration
". . . a very scholarly and innovative treatment of workplace democratization, and an excellent source of ideas and possibilities for research."
-- Prof. George England, Industrial Relations Center, University of Minnesota
